The Incredible Misunderstood Story of the Lord and Gideon

The last post talked about how “the Word of God” was an important character that John identifies as “Jesus of Nazareth” in his gospel. While I hope that last post made that point, now I’m going to concentrate more about how the second person of the trinity — who became flesh and was called “Jesus”…

Explaining John 1 – “In the Beginning was the Word”

In the gospel of John, we do not get a birth story of Jesus. Instead, we get a very unique description of Jesus. It is cosmic, not temporal. Here is what we read in the ASV: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same…

The Complete Chronology of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther Fully Explained

In the last post, we ended with a conundrum after correcting a problem in the ESV Study Bible. There is a very clear solution to the chronology of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther. The solution is that Ezra and Nehemiah had interactions with King Xerxes (485 B.C. – 465 B.C.), and Esther had interactions with King…

Irrational Beauty

Regular readers might not know this, but I’m married. And I love my wife. She is spunky, passionate, fun, and loves true-crime murder novels. She is smart and passionate. And she loves me almost as much as she loves our two cats. And you may think that is a complaint, but if you knew how…

Weird Biblical Chronology – Where Did Noah Go In The Ark?

Noah “left the timeline” and “leaving the timeline” means that Noah went to heaven where he was not subject to the normal rules of time. I know how crazy this sounds, but I don’t care. I’m serious, and I’m going to defend it. By the end of this post, my goal is not for you to believe this is any less “crazy,” (because there’s no hope there). Instead, it is merely my goal to show that things that we know are crazy are not as implausible as we previously thought.

Multiple “Sons of God” in a Weird Part of Scripture

This post is a throw-back to my “Weird Parts of Scripture” series. If you’re interested, a while back, I wrote a crazy series that took Atlantis seriously and that spent a lot of time on Noah and the Flood. I even wrote a really fun piece about “Titans” in the Bible, and I followed it…

Motion Alleges Witness Coercion George Floyd Trials

The previous post covered the strange things that seemed to be happening with the jury, and a separate witness intimidation of the Defense’s use-of-force expert. However, that is not the craziest thing to happen in the post-verdict part of the Derek Chauvin case. The craziest thing seems to be what was just revealed in a…
